We have designed the program to make the most of the expertise of two world-class institutions – Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business and ESADE Business School. In addition, we draw faculty experts from Georgetown’s Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service. Our combined strengths in leadership, business strategy, global policymaking, international relations, global operations and supply chain, marketing for global executives, and cutting-edge financial knowledge make this program truly exceptional. We have built on these strengths, developing a curriculum to focus on the concepts, techniques, tools, and subjects most relevant to the global executive. We have also created an environment where you can work closely with accomplished peers, blend insights from leading academics with innovators in business and government, and apply what you learn to the everyday challenges of your organization. With sessions in the United States of America, Spain, and Dubai, you will have an opportunity to learn through immersion, interaction, and networking with colleagues and organizations. Your experience will be enhanced by the innovative aspects of this program including the personal well-being program, the Leadership Development (LD), and the partners program. Thus, the experience will help you reach your potential both professionally and personally, leading others and leading yourself. As you read this brochure, we trust you will share our enthusiasm. If you seek an intellectual and professional challenge that will position you for leadership and success in the global business environment, we welcome your application.

Partners Program: Accomplished executives join the Global Advanced Management Program to understand the big picture and to be able to implement the learning effectively. They need to lead with a global perspective and they understand the individual responsibilities of serving as a role model for others. Consequently, significant others are welcome to join on the last day of each module to experience what participants are going through, and develop jointly a vision for the global realities of the future under the guidance of faculty. CEO Forum: Recognized leaders in various business communities are invited to engage with participants by discussing topics relevant to their own professional experience. This will take place as an informal chat, allowing for the engagement of participants in an open atmosphere as they discuss the important topics of personal growth, strategy, and overall business trends, as experienced by a leader in their field. Best Practice GAMP® Forum: Participants speak with their peers in a formal setting, during which they discuss the expertise and best practices of their organizations and identify what has made their company an industry leader. The presentation will concentrate on their personal insights and draw on their recommendations for the implementation of recognized best practices at other organizations. Peer-to-Peer Forum: Moderated peer-to-peer discussion based on real-time issues faced by participants. These sessions will inspire conversations that reinforce the application of topics central to the program, as well as foster relationships between participants and within industries. This allows for the immediate application of companyspecific improvements based on professional recommendations from peers. GAMP®
Special Program Features
School of Foreign Service’s Global View: Reflecting our focus on global business, we draw on faculty from the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University, consistently ranked as the top school in international relations, globally. Their contribution to the program’s geopolitical perspective is founded on their international business diplomacy expertise and the global reach of their academic and professional activities.
Special Program Features
Leading Yourself: Creating momentum for a balance between professional achievement and personal fulfillment, we encourage participants to address their own needs in conjunction with the needs of their company, society, and team. These activities, including yoga classes and personal training sessions, aim to foster discussion and awareness of the importance of personal leadership and how it allows executives to more effectively lead within their organization. Meet the Author: Discussion between the participants and the author of a business book whose topic is related to the location and contents of the module. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions about the research and experience of the author, as well as discuss the application of concepts examined within the text. Exposure to the cutting-edge ideas of some of the worldâ€™s leading business authors is a unique and meaningful learning tool. In-the-Field Experience: Off-site visits are an opportunity to meet with business leaders and engage with local executives about the unique practices of business in each city where the program is held. Participants will visit organizations recognized for their achievements and selected for the relevance to the core topics of the module. Learning from Cultural Immersion: Local experts illuminate cultural concepts and business practices in each module location. In the past, this has ranged from baseball analogies as they are used in business conversations, to a visit to favelas in SĂŁo Paulo to stimulate discussion about opportunities for profitable, responsible social enterprises in economically disparate areas.
Historical Perspectives: A first-hand interaction with a city and its inhabitants gained from a guided walk through the heart of the module location will allow participants to better understand its history and growth. This will also elucidate the varied paths to development, unique to each country, and demonstrate the challenges faced locally.
We are looking for a diverse group of individuals from a variety of nationalities and backgrounds. A business background is not a requirement. However, all applicants should hold a bachelorâ€™s degree from an accredited college or university and have at least 12 years of professional work experience. They must also have an international profile and demonstrate strong interpersonal skills as well as a capacity for leadership.

Georgetown and ESADE believe maintaining a diverse class in terms of industries represented produces a richer academic experience.
It is also aimed at executives with international responsibilities interested in creating a global professional network, gaining knowledge of international markets, and developing competencies needed for a successful career in a competitive and globalized economy. As a participant of the Georgetown-ESADE GAMP®, you will be challenged and stretched by both the faculty and your classmates. We carefully select seasoned, high-potential participants whose diverse careers, skill sets and cultural backgrounds complement your own.
Each module is a “deep immersion” experience that integrates core GAMP® courses and a series of networking events. Every module also gives you time to extend your personal and professional network while broadening your global perspective. Networking events will introduce you to local Georgetown and ESADE alumni as well as leading local business executives and government officials. One of the most vibrant features of the Georgetown-ESADE program is the team approach to learning. You will work collaboratively on coursework and projects drawing upon the skills, knowledge, and backgrounds of your teammates. You will create friendships and professional relationships that will last a lifetime.
Georgetown-ESADE GAMP® is designed for directors of business units in multinational companies, regional directors of medium-sized companies, and the heads or senior executives of governmental or non-governmental organizations.
The program provides an environment where participants learn from their classmates, professors, and corporate executives from around the world.
Dynamic Learning • Presentation and in-depth conceptual explanation of the subjects by program faculty. • Analysis of examples and real-life situations, with practical application. • Application of concepts through case studies and group work. • In-depth look at the design and implementation of strategy as well as the development of a more competitive approach through several computer models.
Interaction The key element of this learning model is undoubtedly the participants themselves. By exchanging experiences, they enrich the knowledge acquired both in and outside of the classroom. Participant selection, group discussions, and working lunches are designed to promote dynamic exchange and knowledge sharing among peers from different functional areas and business sectors. Participants establish relationships with other managers and executives with similar problems and, in doing so, create a network of contacts that lasts well beyond the classroom.
